San Francisco, CA, United States, 2007/07/08 - Yehey is using Pixsy’s enhanced media search platform to populate its highly-popular Internet portal, providing up to the minute image and video content for consumers around the world.
Pixsy Corporation, a media search platform that powers private label image and video search engines, today announced the availability of customized vertical media search engines developed with Pixsy’s proprietary technology. The first implementation goes live with Yehey.com, the world’s number one Filipino internet portal and search engine.
With this new product enhancement Pixsy expands its award-winning media search platform; creating tailored verticals for any business partner. Customized search engines can be built from a variety of specifications. For example, a partner may want to capture image and video content from a specific list of URLs; they may prefer to use only their own unique content; or they may want to include media from the massive Pixsy index. The latest Pixsy technology makes any or all of these options possible, depending on the publishers’ needs.
Under this agreement Yehey is using Pixsy’s enhanced media search platform to populate its highly-popular Internet portal, providing up to the minute image and video content for consumers around the world.
“Pixsy technology enables us to deliver a Filipino oriented image and video search engine to our huge user-base,” said Yehey executive Lazlo Miguel A. Lim. “By delivering relevant media content to our vast, global consumer audience, the partnership creates a unique advertising monetization opportunity.”
Pixsy’s Media Search Platform will enable consumers to search for multimedia content based on a variety of popular categories, including news, sports, entertainment, celebrities, travel and more. Pixsy will use its proprietary technology to capture, index and deliver the most current and relevant thumbnail images and video worldwide.
“Yehey is an excellent partner for our entry into Asia,” said Chase Norlin, Pixsy CEO. “Our advanced technology solutions will add value to their user experience, which will reach their strong following among Filipino internet users worldwide.”
By partnering with the Filipino Internet giant Yehey, Pixsy is creating a footprint in Asia. Pixsy recently announced entry in the European markets through a partnership with ad pepper media; one of several strategic ad network partners.
From its humble beginnings as a college garage experiment in 1996, Yehey! rapidly grew into a powerhouse portal with a stable business model operating on lucrative ground, uncommon for many websites that have succumbed to the dot-com crash. Starting out as a mere Search engine targeted at the local Filipino market, Yehey.Com has evolved into the premiere Filipino Search Engine and Portal that offers different content channels catering to individual market segments, e-commerce facilities with complete, end to end solutions, and a host of web services with an ever growing community of users.
